I am Tamara! I am a 22 year old university student currently living in Perth. Other things about me are probably best discovered by getting to know me personally. Ha there now the burden is on you!
I have a deviantart which I haven't updated in a long time and I've also set up a separate tumblr where I dump doodles and artwork (more recent stuff generally).
I also take commissions for stamps, digital art and dress-up games. Details and prices here.
This caterpillar is the larva of the Cecropia moth, also known as the Robin moth. It is one of our largest caterpillars. Born black it shed its skin as it ages and becomes yellow with the blue and black areas deepening in color as it ages.
In the late summer or early fall, the larva spins an overwintering cocoon attached to a twig on the plant where the larva fed. The large adult moth emerges May-July.
It’s life span as an adult is usually less than a week as it does not feed, and night time is it’s hours of business. Mating is the only goal of the adult moth.
Here’s what the adult moth looks like:

I will always love you, Cecropia caterpillar. To the end of time and beyond. ;-;
